A woman Veteran’s final wish granted with a personal touch
When Gulf War Veteran Laura Thompson was
diagnosed with terminal cancer only six months after marrying her soul
mate, VA volunteers at the Robley Rex VA Medical Center stepped in with their “Final Mission” --
a honeymoon, an engraved wedding ring for her soulmate and wooden
keepsake boxes for each of her children.
Thank you to VA physicians, nearly 25,000
strong, who each and every day demonstrate their caring and commitment to
this country’s Veterans. National Doctor’s Day recognizes the
contributions of doctors to individual lives and communities.

VETERAN OF THE WEEK
week we honor the men and women who served during the Vietnam War. Nine million Americans,
approximately 7 million living today, served between November 1, 1955, to
May 15, 1975, whether in-country, in-theater or stationed elsewhere
during those 20 years. All answered the call of duty.
